A Scottish Loch and a mountain

Here are a couple more shots from my trip to Scotland at Easter


Loch Ba on a cloudy day

A two shot panorama of Buachaille Etive Beag similiar to my previous shown shot

What do you think especially the Loch reflections?

A fine reflection in that first one Alf. Any chance of the colour version, please?

Re: A Scottish Loch and a mountain

I really like No 1 and suspect that B&W was a wise and sympathetic choice, given the conditions. The reflections are outstanding and really make this image. Do I spot a very slight processing halo around the foreground rock?

Alf, what a corker Numero Uno is simply stunning and I lurve the b&w which adds much to the view, esp. snow

The Reflections in the Loch are stunning clarity too

The colour adds little to the scene IMO they were very muted anyway and the image lacked contrast and clarity

Yeah it shows worse on some platforms than others though I should fix it really.
